Cutting 6.5 m3 of firewood in one go with a McCulloch chainsaw

Powerful chainsaws have been the pride of McCulloch since the 1940s, but what about today’s models?
Well, we put up quite a challenge for a new McCulloch saw in the form of 6.5 m3 of firewood in need of efficient cutting. Cutting such a large amount of wood is of course a serious test of the chainsaw’s engine, sword, chain and many other features. Of equal importance is its ergonomics, weight and easy-access controls, as the user should be able to do the work without getting harmed or weary.

Cutting the firewood took three and a half hours, and as the test user finally put the saw down, it was clear that the new chainsaws grandly live up to the high expectations and the promise of “the power to get it done.”
